For Sunday

Reading of the Law of God
Be kind to one another, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, as God in Christ forgave you. Ephesians 4.32

Confession of Sin
Our Father, at times we find ourselves abrupt instead of kind, preoccupied and indifferent instead of tenderhearted, and even holding a grudge instead of being quick to forgive. In this we sin against You as well as against others. Please, be gracious and forgive us. We thank You for showing us our sin. We thank You for being so willing to forgive. We thank You for Jesus who makes all this real for us. Amen.

Declaration of Pardon
For I delivered to you as of first importance what I also received: that Christ died for our sins in accordance with the Scriptures. 1 Corinthians 15.3

The Lord enrich you with his grace, and nourish you with his blessing; the Lord defend you in trouble and keep you from all evil; the Lord accept your prayers, and absolve you from your offenses, for the sake of Jesus Christ, our Savior.

Book of Common Prayer
